Each of seven departments (English, social sciences, mathematics, sciences, languages, arts, and physical education) has designed a curriculum sequence for grades five through twelve, with a goal of maximizing the potential of every student and fostering academic and personal success, both now and for the future. Toward that same end, a leadership curriculum is integrated into The Gregory School program, creating robust experiences for students in every grade.
Our faculty, coaches, counselors, and librarians incorporate the guiding principles of the 6 Cs (critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, compassion, communication, and community) throughout a student’s time here, providing an educational experience of the whole child that is both global and closely personalized.
Learning is exciting in The Gregory School fifth grade! Our two dedicated fifth-grade teachers make learning come alive and create a classroom culture that promotes a sense of community, academic risk-taking, and perseverance. Students have the opportunity to create and explore through project-based learning and a STEM-enriched environment. While our fifth grade is primarily self-contained, students are placed individually in mathematics and language classes at the appropriate level for them. All fifth graders participate in a weekly "Genius Hour," in which students do projects of personal interest.
With over 14,000 books, our library is a 4,000 sq ft reader's paradise, offering a comfortable space for study, reading, and group meetings. The library also serves as our technology hub, with IT support available for all students and faculty. Our faculty have extensive training and over a decade of experience in integrating laptops into every classroom, and we consider technology to be one of the essential components in preparing our students for higher education and for life.
